I got a couple of Love & Toast body washes (or, as the bottle calls them, shower crèmes) at Grocery Outlet, as they were on sale for $2 for the the 8.2 fl oz bottle. Usually, they retail for around $12!
The reason is that in addition to a bunch of unpronounceable chemicals, they have a bunch of natural oils and extracts. Dew Blossom, for example, has minute amounts of pollen, honeysuckle, apricot, and matricaria extracts. They also don’t have parabens and other things that may be bad for you.
As a body wash, they seem to work pretty well. They have a nice lather and a good, neither too thick or thin consistency. The bottle could be a little easier to squeeze, but it’s attractive and takes little room.
So far, Ive used the Dew Blossom and the Salt & Sea. A reviewer described Dew Blossom as smelling like play-dough, and I can actually understand the comparison. It’s basically a powdery, sweetish scent. It reminds me of the perfumed powder my grandmother might have had, but it’s very light. Salt & Sea smells of citrus and salt. Basically, like a margarita would smell. It’s a little bit strange because you don’t necessarily feel like you are cleaning yourself, when you smell salty, but overall I like it. I probably wouldn’t get more dew blossom, but might get another bottle of salt & sea.
I haven’t tried the body lotions, also available at Grocery Outlet for $2, but I might get one today before they are all gone. Update: I smelled the lotions, they’re all too citrusy for me.
